Rated 2 out of 5 by nanny3636 Shrinks
I have been ordering and wearing these shirts for years, and have loved the fit and durability. However, something has changed in the last 2 or 3 years. I used to dry them in the dryer, and never had a problem. Now, if one accidently goes in the dryer, I might as well just throw it out, because it is way too short. Even hanging them to dry, I have to stretch them while they are wet to make them long enough. Buying a bigger size only results in a shirt that is too wide and too short. LLBean, I have been a fan for years. Can you address this problem?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tess11965 Beware - it shrinks!
I love all things LL Bean and it has always been my "go to" place to shop on line. Here in Maryland we are transitioning from Summer into Fall and it's a little cool for short sleeves so I was happy to find this shirt. The overall fit is good and the shirt is comfy, sleeves are just the right length. But that being said, it shrinks in length ALOT! I washed it in warm water and I never, ever put my shirts in the dryer but always hang them to dry. After several washings the shirt now feels uncomfortable to wear because I feel like I am missing INCHES from the length. Guess I will just wear it around the house because I am self-conscious wearing it out in public because it is just too short. :-(

I bought 5 because I love the fit, not too snug, not too loose, material is heavy enough to lay nicely and looks like a well made tshirt. The v neck is just right and sleeves dont pinch. I wear a 6, am 5'1 and ordered medium. The black is kind of faded after less than a year of light to medium use, but the berry and teal green still look great. Not a fan of the heathered colors. Good value and workmanship, will buy more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by VicRic terrible fit
I am 5'2", 130 lbs and chesty and can never wear less than a large top. This "slightly fitted" petite large hung on me like a sack. There is no slight fitting anywhere, and it is not even the shorter length I expected from a petite. Replacing it with a smaller size will end up costing shipping which will put this ill fitting T shirt in the $30. range.Very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FlaLady Short 3/4 length sleeves
I have liked all of my LL Bean purchases until this one. I purchased it because I liked the color. Unfortunately, the sleeves are about 1.5 to 2 inches shorter than my other 3/4 length knit top sleeves. When I wear this top, and bend my elbows (as in driving), the sleeves pull up to my elbows and this is not comfortable, nor does it look nice. As my height is 5' 5 3/4" tall, my arms are of an average length. I have not yet decided if I want to send it back because I like the color.

Loved this tee, Even ordered another one before I washed the first one. After washing in cold water and hanging to dry it is at least one and half inch shorter. This has happened with other tees I have ordered. Why can't LLBean make a shirt that does not shrink????
I would recommend this item with information that it will shrink.

LLBean is so good at these 3/4 sleeve knit tops. I've bought 3 different styles now--boatneck, fancy neckline tucks and this basic--and loved them all. They're always flattering and wear well after washing.

I have several of these tops from years past and they have been one of my favorite tops. The fit has changed. LL Bean please listen to your plus size customers...we need more styles and in the same amount of colors as the misses sizes. If the items are not here..............

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bellaby Lovely tee shirt - didn't shrink for me!
I bought this earlier in the summer in a Fuschia colour. To me, the material felt more substantial than the LL Bean pima tee shirts I have purchased in the past. It fit well, didn't pull anywhere, and the arms were not too tight. I machine washed it in cold water with Woolite, hung it to dry on a clothes hanger and ironed it before wearing. It did not shrink in length, nor was it tighter in width afterwards. I would order more in different colours.
